The Dictator is a 2012 American comedy directed by Larry Charles (Borat) starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Faris, and Ben Kingsley. Baron Cohen stars as Admiral General Aladeen, despot of the fictional North African country of Wadiya, which appears to take the place of Eritrea on the map. Typical for his movies, Baron Cohen promoted the film in character, including an appearance at the 84th Academy Awards.

The following weapons were used in the film The Dictator:


Beretta 92FS

Admiral General Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) carries a gold-plated Beretta 92FS as his personal sidearm.

Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) never draws the Beretta in the theatrical cut.
The Beretta is drawn in a scene in the unrated edition. It is also seen during the end credits of the theatrical cut. Note the Wadiyan uniforms appear to be US Desert Battle Dress Uniforms ("chocolate chips camo") dyed teal.
Aladeen apologizes for accidentally shooting his soldier. He explains that he thought the gun was on Aladeen (the joke in the film being that he changed several words to "Aladeen"). But as we can see here, the gun is actually in Aladeen, er, safe.

Colt Mustang

Aladeen pulls out a Colt Mustang against his double Efawadh (also Sacha Baron Cohen).

Assault Rifles


Many Wadiyan troops appear to be armed with AKS-74 rifles fitted with synthetic furniture.

Heckler & Koch MP5 (Airsoft)

Nadal (Jason Mantzoukas) has a partially-disassembled Heckler & Koch MP5 in his apartment. This is quite clearly a disassembled airsoft MP5 (note the gearbox, inner barrel, and battery pack holder in the pistol grip).
